Description

Welcome to IIT Stuart - Princeton Quant Trading Conference!

The IIT Stuart - Princeton Quant Trading Conference seeks to bring together a unique cross-section of the leading experts from academia, industry, and government in a low-key intellectual environment to catalyze discussions and strengthen ties among these three communities. We will cover subjects ranging from algorithmic trading and liquidity to market impact and the flash crash.

Objective: Unfortunately, academia, government, and industry operate within separate silos with industry and government often unable to keep up with each other’s developments or the remarkable advances in academia. This conference seeks to break down these barriers and spur future collaboration and research between these three communities.

We’re offering two tiers of tickets:

  • Student tickets are $120

  • Non-student tickets are $400

**TICKETS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE**

In addition to this year’s Fall IIT Stuart - Princeton Quant Trading Conference, we will also be hosting the PortfolioEffect Algorithmic Trading Workshop on Sunday, October 22th from 9:00 am - 4:30 pm.

Our workshop has been developed and will be led by Stephanie Toper, Senior Quantitative Developer at PortfolioEffect. During the workshop, you will learn how to compute intraday risk with PortfolioEffectHFT package available on CRAN. The complexity of high frequency market data will be explained. You will study how to build your own portfolio, create a strategy, backtest it, optimize it, and use vol forecasting.

Prerequisites: Beginner knowledge of R and finance, college level math, laptop with RStudio installed.

Similar workshops cost $800, however registered participants of the 2017 IIT Stuart - Princeton Quant Trading Conference will receive admission at the following subsidized prices:

  • Student tickets are $85

  • Non-student tickets are $350

  • Industry tickets are $799
